My husband and I have begun to eat more cabbage too. I'll have to buy some soon. Have a good cabbage and noodle recipe to try (but that recipe isn't too low on the carb scale).

Remember you can be a miracle: it may seem small to you but can make smile or lend a hand to someone else.

Both of these dishes with cabbage sound delicious as I love cabbage. When I am shopping this week I will buy a cabbage and try them.

I made cabbage boats the other night. It was really good. I happened to have Napa cabbage in the house. I used a couple of the center leaves. They kind of make a little dish. I put a layer of onion, peppers, fish and then onions and peppers again. I drizzled a little lemon juice on it and added some salt and pepper and garlic. Then I put the other leaf over top to help hold in the moisture. I covered the dish and baked for about 30 min. I think this would be really good simmered in some canned tomatoes, too.

I'm into cabbage these days. Lots of varieties and lots of different ways of cooking it ...so I don't feel like I'm eating the same food 7 days a week. I make a simple version of mild kimchi, which is meant to last for a few weeks. I love to do a quick sauté with bok choy, love the stem end in a stir fry...and the leaves are great for adding to soups or eating like sautéed spinach. And I enjoy the speed at which something like savoy cabbage cooks up.

Because I eat a lot of cabbage instead of starch... I cut back a lot on my calories. It's inexpensive...it has a long life in the fridge...and it cooks fast. All good

I've enjoyed shopping for Roma tomatoes, when on sale, for use in salsa, spaghetti sauce, etc. They freeze well; just place uncovered single layer to freeze, then place in bag or box to store in freezer. Hmm mmmm.

the closest drug store expanded and now has quite a bit of food, no fresh fruit or veggies but almost everything else. They have clearance deals and I check weekly or so. Two bags of grocs for $15 yesterday!

I found Laura Lynn store brand (from Ingels) graham crackers. They have less sugar than the regular ones. They reminds me of animal crackers. but just a little sweeter. I eat graham crackers with peanut butter and a glass of milk often for a snack and love this. They are not with the brand name crackers but in the cookie section next to them. Very happy that someone decided not to buy them and left them in the wrong place. Now I look for them. I didn't know about them before because I do not look at the cookies and hurry right by them. LOL

We have a place near me that is called Valley Produce. Was there last week, 50 cents for a large stack of celery, Asian pears for 50 cent a pound, red onions 3 pounds for .99 and bananas for 99cents for 3 pounds. a lot of great bargains. I hate it when there are sales on items I can't freeze. I did freeze a few of the bananas for smoothies.

I am out of my homegrown chicken now, so I have been looking in the grocery, about every other week I have noticed that chicken is on sale, last week it was chicken thighs and legs for 99 cents a lb, I bought a family pack and boned out and took the skin off 4 thighs to use 2 for making a leaner chicken cacciatore, one thigh for each serving, used two to marinade in the ginger maranade here on SP which I will grill this week and saved the trimmings in the soup bag in the freezer. The rest of the thighs I put in individual bags for later use so I can pick out one or two as needed. Two weeks before it was boneless skinless chicken breasts on sale for $1.99, I got a family pack of these too and froze several and used some for chicken salad, grilling, and some new recipes I found. Chicken is a good cheap protein that can be fixed such a variety of ways that you will never tire of it. Eggs are also a excellent cheap protein, and the possibilities are endless, boiled, scrambled, quiche, omelets, french toast, just to name a few. Now that summer is coming up farmers markets may offer you a cheaper alternative to buying fresh produce in the store, and if you live somewhere you can plant a garden it is even cheaper and a better quality then in the store. I lived in an apartment for a while with no garden but planted containers with cherry tomatoes, cukes, peppers, lettuce and herbs, it was a tasty summer!

I'm diabetic and have very limited money. I shop the sales and I cook. I can not afford to go out to eat. Once you get into the habit of planning and looking at all the sale papers it will get easier. Not enjoyable but, easier. For instance Shopper's Food Warehouse has cherries on sale for $2.88 a lb. My local market has them $4.99 a lb. I also freeze alot. It has really helped me when like right now I have $42 to last me until July 9th. I have to get gas so the stuff I put in the freezer will help me get through most of the next week or so. I may be able to get a little side work in to get my through. Good luck, you can do it!

Shopping small home markets, road side stands or Farmer's markets for single person
weekly fruits and vegetables. Usually is cheaper than supermarket or department foodstore market.

Go Lady Sherry! One pound packages of ground meat - I do one of two things:

1) Add bread crumbs and herbs - 5-6 individual burgers that can be frozen for single entries
2) Cook tomato meat sauce, cool and freeze 3-4 ounce portions to heat up as spaghetti
sauce.

The last 3-4 yrs my roommate has done all the cooking. I had not lost any weight. Not his fault. I wasn't tracking and exercising. I have now taken control. As far as meats I but in bulk, cook it and freeze it after I have weighed it. I wrap it up in the portions and put them in a big freezer bag. I label them. Fresh stuff I buy every week. Now that Spring is here I use a farm near buy. This year I plan on buying baskets of the fruit when I can and freeze them. Money is a big issue. week and next week I am grateful I have things put up. I love soup so., I make a big pot and freeze it.

I don't go grocery shopping often, in the winter mostly to get fresh veggies, in the summer just to get staples like flour and baking needs. I usually put meat in the freezer in the fall, last fall I put a side of pork, a hind quarter of beef and a lamb. In the summer I usually do chickens, 15 to 20 of them and cut them up in meal sized portions which is very convenient. Last summer I put a lot of berries in the freezer, 9 gallons of raspberries, 6 gallons of blueberries, 5 gallons of blackberries, 3 gallons of elderberries, and one gallon each of gooseberries and currents. It has been great to go to the freezer and grab a cup of berries, I hope this year has a good berry season! Getting ready to prepare my garden for planting now, looking forward to home grown veggies again!

There was a time in my life where I had to set on a bar stool to do a lot. I had stress fractures in both heel and bone spurs were growing and lots of Pain. I just did what I could and that stool was a lifesaver. Now years later I still have the stool only I use it as a plant stand for a spider plant. One day I may need it again.

I have to go right by a small neighborhood Groc. store on the way home each day. I will run in an grab any fresh veggie that looks good if I need something for supper. Mainly I running in for broccoli or potatoes. They are also the best place in town to buy meat. They have a butcher and do most of their meat fresh. I get my Bone/Skinless chick at Walmart because it is much cheaper. But the Veggie section of our walmart is not so great.

Farmers Market will be opening soon so I can get fresh stuff and hopefully fresh plain goat cheese.

Here in San Antonio I have found that the local market, La Michoacana, has a meat market where I can just buy a 1/2pound if I wish, and they have a fair selection of fruit and veggies. The walk there and back has been helpful also. I can buy less per trip, and and make it part of my walking program.

I keep an eye out for sales on frozen veggies, and buy Freezer storage bags (Quart and Gallon). I can cook what I want and keep the unused portion frozen. I then wash the bags and they're good to go at least a couple more rounds.

My wife uses a "bar stool" that she can sit on in the Kitchen which puts her at the right level to cook when she wishes. I'm sorry Lakeshore480 is having such trouble.

You can cook in muffin tins for small servings, and there are baking books for using various cans for making small cakes and such. I've downloaded many recipes for that type of cooking but so far have not tried it.

your fellow suffering-servant,

I know how you feel. That happens to me all the time. I get very frustrated when I have to through out food. I too have taken to buying frozen or canned. But it is not the same as fresh. I have very bad knees and I can't stand for very long. I used to love to cook and bake, but now I just can't stand long enough to do anything. Even doing dishes is a challenge. I have to wash up in steps, resting in-between.

Same thing happens to me with fresh veggies so I try to buy frozen in my regular shopping then go back to store for the fresh when I need it but I live less than a mile from a major grocery store. I try menus but haven't got the hang of that either. Only cooking for one is hard like that for me.

Slow but will get there!

Veggies - I've been having the issue of buying too much & it goes bad before I can use it. I intend to prepare it & all, but just haven't gotten the hang of getting the right amount of things yet. Sometimes I'll buy ingredients for a specific dish & for some reason the menu had to change or our schedules changed so I'm again throwing things out. Am I the only one having this issue? Then again- I'd rather have more to select from than not have them & then eat things maybe that aren't in balance.

Mix with mayonaise or ranch dressing, add cut up fruit or chicken/fish.

Dolop onto nasoya wrap and bake for instant crunchy rolls.

Never heard of this golden Italian dressing either; it that the brand of Italian dressing?

I still find the only way to get my veggies in is to use my soup. Yesterday I put cabbage, onions, carrots, celery and tomatoes together with cayenne pepper. Low fat and sodium for me and more in the freezer for next week.

Slow but will get there!

What is golden Italian Dressing - I know regular and zesty, but not golden.

Sounds good!

I'm enjoying coming up with ways to use "Rainbow Slaw". I bought a bag of it and have added it to soup, cooked it as a vegetable, put it on a sandwich and of course had it as salad. And the bag's not empty yet!

Talking of mushrooms have you tried 1/4 tsp. of golden Italian dressing added when you fry mushrooms intsead of frying in butter or oit. I learned that years ago and it makes my mushrooms taste so much better.

To me HEALTH means Energy. Stamina. Flexibilty. A relatively pain free body. Enjoying healthy food. You are your body, and your weight loss efforts will succeed exactly to the extent that you mange to do the work on behalf of your embodied self. You’ll do much better when you focus on making positive changes to improve your health and well-being, rather than on fighting your bad habits.

I usually have to cook a different veggie for my hubby. He doesn't like many things in the veggie family but we share the same protein. Sometimes he may get a potato and I won't have one. I tell him there are always eggs, if he doesn't like what I'm cooking but it is rare that it is an issue. Thankfully there are no kids to work around.

Just cause my body is weird I know I don't get enough vitamins especially D, Calcium and mag. I take them in pill form to make sure and have blood work done about 3 times a year. Next time you have blood work have them check your D levels. You can absorb calcium without the D. I have also recently added a multi B's vitamin and it has helped with overall feeling better, more so than just a generic all-purpose vitamin pill. I know myself well enough that I know I will never get what I need through a varied diet.

I think mushrooms are a good source of all kinds of minerals check out mushroom recipes if you think about it. Seems like I read that a while back.

Every time I make a meal I end up freezing most of it because I don't want to eat the same food four days in a row. It's so much simpler just to cook up one egg or make a sandwich but when I do that I don't meet my daily nutritional recommendations. When I started tracking my food I noticed the first week that I was not even getting half of the recommended magnesium, potassium and calcium. I've really had to search for recipes that aren't too large that are packed with nutrition. Not always easy when husband doesn't like beans, lentils or whole wheat. I sometimes make separate meals for us just to satisfy our needs. He doesn't need to lose any weight and doesn't care about nutrients but I do and I'm the one doing the cooking so some meals he eats what I make or makes his own.

I'm experimenting again, making a soup in the small CP. I will list ingredients later if it turns out well. This is a no-shop soup, just using stuff from the fridge and pantry.

Combining work and meal preparation during snow season can be
challenging. My favorite is casseroles that last more than one day
with a chopped salad side.

We rely on our meals to go further than just one meal. What's the point of cooking something if not to have leftovers to use for another meal or to make into something else. I love to make a huge pot of chili, minestrone, or chicken noodle soup and stash some in the freezer and/or enjoy for a couple more meals before it goes into the freezer. I'm making braised chicken quarters with winter vegetables tonight for dinner. It's in the oven right now and smells delish in the house right now. I know we'll have leftovers for one day on the weekend. I always plan our meals on weekends for the upcoming week.

I must say ... hats off to you ladies that freeze portions to use at a later time ... I think we are getting old, neither of us like to cook from the freezer anymore .. just doesn't taste the same. When all the kids were home ... dinner almost always started from the freezer .. Currently we are working on not being sooooo wasteful ! We see it, want it, buy it, and usually can't eat all before it goes bad. We are getting better. Today though, I bought the very smallest chuck roast and we are having that for dinner and probably lunch or dinner tomorrow ... hopefully none will go to the dog :)

I make soup at least once a week, veggie or with fish ( cod is least expensive
in winter in NE). Last week at Whole Foods I found a small plastic container
with chopped celery, carrots & onions. separate portions, With this $2
container, I made two half gallons chicken vegetable soup.

I also sometimes use confetti chopped vegetables in broth, adding barley or
quinoa for thickening. This time I used a few broad egg noodles, spinach and
left over chicken breast pieces, flavoring with lemon juice, omega-3 fish oil,
garlic salt and pepper. After work some evenings soup is just enough for an
evening meal.

Today I cooked up a very small roast beef in my slow cooker,my DH just finished eating the whole thing and said it was delicious all I added was a half cup of red wine and lots of garlic cooked it all day and then he ate the whole thing but it was very small just a couple of servings so I was glad he ate it.I went out to our local chinese restaurant for lunch and enjoyed it.Overate as usual but am still losing a little weight.I only eat out a couple or three times a month sooo.Haven't been shopping lately but will go to Wal Mart and resupply soon.

I just read where you can put a paper towel in a brown paper bag, and your lettuce will keep longer. I was going to try this.

After I buy meat, I cook it all up, measure it, bag it in small ziplock bags for one meal. Then add them all to a large freezer bag. Then I only have to take out the food I want for the next day to thaw in the fridge, and warm it up in the toaster oven or microwave.

Saves time cooking a weeks worth at one time, instead of multiple same meals each day.

I buy meats and cut them down to 2 portion sizes than freeze them in ziplock style bags. Frozen veggies such as peas and corn are broken down into 2 portion bags as well. M raw veggies I buy at the salad bar in the store. Since I have only two of us, that works out okay for the budget. My pantry I stock with sale items. Then when it's meal time, I can grab meat and whatever I'm cooking with it and I'm ready to go. For soups, stews, and things you can freeze well, I make a big batch in my slow cooker - cook once and eat 2 or 3 times.

Well tonight I had a roast beef and AuJus sandwich(sort of a french dip).I decided earlier today NOT to have any dinner because I have been eating to much lately but alas didn't keep my promise to myself.DH didn't have any dinner.I am so proud of him because he is almost at his weight goal but I am not doing to good,at the moment but that will change.We took a long drive this afternoon and I went to our local Safeway store to buy the food for my dinner tonight late in the day is always a bad shopping time but we went anyway because we live close by and it was on our way home! I did my exercise this eve.as always so that helps a little.Maybe tomorrow I will fix some homemade soup with vege's that always fills me up and makes me happy. Well have a fun night ,CLinOregon emoticon

I plan on making three or four different types of meals in a two week period (a covered dish can last at least 3 or 4 meals as can crock pot dish) Also plan on makings of salad for lunch. Oatmeal or grits is great for breakfast (with fruit mixed in of course) Plan ahead before you shop and MAKE A SHOPPING LIST AND STICK TO THE LIST

I am using the Tupperware Micro-wave omelette cooker. No butter needed.
It is suggested to use two eggs but I only use 1 egg plus 1-2 chopped fresh mushrooms,1 tbsp. chopped bell pepper and minced chives and sprinkle .5 tbsp. shredded cheese on top.

Still using my stonewave. My new favorite breakfast= slice of onion, mushroom, TBsp frozen spinach and egg. I put the veg's in first with butter for a couple minutes then add egg, cook for 30 seconds, rest & cook another 30 seconds - and rest till poached egg white cooked. a 3 veg, protein & fat complete meal. Great fast meal if you're on the 5-2 diet too.

I am bad about sacrificial veggie. I have found the best way is to purchase only what I need for the next couple of days. I always have onions, pepper and garlic & carrots. They never go bad in my house. Fruits are the same way, too. I am lucky enough to be able to drop into a small local groc. store several times a week.

I had a fridge clean out this weekend too. But nothing edible was found. A few experiments grown fuzzy. I do need to cook from my pantry I have cans and boxes galore. How is it all this stacks up. Maybe I'll cook that frozen bag of stir-fried veggies to go with our pork chops tonight.

I don't see them too often in the stores around here, and if I do there are expensive. Traverse City Michigan is the Cherry Capital, they have a Cherry Festival every summer in July. When I was a kid growing uo, we used to pick the cherries off from the trees, now they have machines, that shake them off. youtu.be/4i0P5wQJvlw this video shows the way it is done now. youtu.be/5fQFLMmgMiU And hand picking the way we did as kids, it was Fun, and that's how we used to make money. emoticon

I too love dark large cherries.I worked one summer many years ago at a facility called "Cherry-Best" in Wenachee,Wash.and we would get the extra large restaurant cherries to process every morning and I would eat so many of the ripe ones.They were delicious but the grocery stores don't seem to carry the extra large cherries so alas I have to settle for the smaller ones but I don't eat cherries very often anymore.

I've been away so have just read thru the posts. I want to share one of my favorite tips.
Chop a banana and put it in the freezer for about an hour, then blend. I have a Bamix hand blender. You will have the nicest, creamiest banana "ice cream".
I also freeze bananas that are getting to the over-ripe stage and thaw for a few minutes, then blend. Peanut butter or other fruits can be added. You do not need sugar but adding honey or syrup makes a nice taste variation. This is my go-to healthy dessert or snack. It tastes so wonderful, much nicer than just chomping on a banana.

Rosie that's a good idea. I frequently have leftovers so I use them for quick lunches throughout the week. My husband likes having a meal instead of sandwiches every day for lunch.

ClayLady, maybe you could freeze some of your leftovers. Then use them at another meal during the week.?

It is hard to grocery shop for two people as my DH doesn't eat many vege"s.He is a heavy meat eater but has slowed down considerably in the last few years as his COPD is chronic now and he has to eat a lot slower but he is almost at his weight goal and I still have a long ways to go but I exercise daily which he can't do so that helps me some although weigh in day on sunday mornings are not going well for me so I need to change up my exercises and eat less like my DH does.Grocery shopping is difficult because we wind up with so many left overs which I am not fond of.Oh well such is life and we are very blessed anyway.

Thanks for the tip about the frozen bananas at Sams. I'll look for them the next time I'm there. I'm always looking for ways to get my husband to eat fruit and since bananas are one fruit he likes with the addition of the dark chocolate which he also likes will be a nice change from bananas with peanut butter.

I came across the green bags in one of our stores, cannot remember if it was our food chain store or Dollar General, maybe eve Walmart. Back in Jan. of 2008, they were advertised on TV. my late hubby said order some, which I did, they seemed to work well, but I have not used them in a long time.

I think the main grocery store chains do not carry them as it discourages waste, thus their sales would drop.

Here is a link to Amazon whom carry the vegetable and fruit green bags.

Hope this link helps you resolves you question.
